Fronz Arp

"It’s easy to figure out where the David Bowie comparisons come from after hearing just a few notes from Fronz Arp. The poppy sound and catchy beats certainly bring to mind one of Britain’s finest" - The Indie Mine (Apr 01, 2013)

    Do We Come From Two Worlds
    By Fronz Arp
    A slight return to the lo-fi and simplified acoustic recording of previous years. The song explores the type of relationship where you just can't seem to get along, the "from Venus and Mars" experience

    Foreign Bodies
    By Fronz Arp
    Foreign Bodies is about a man who sympathises with the plight of refugees and boat people by putting himself in their shoes, while at the same time feeling helpless to do anything about the issue

    Erasure
    By Fronz Arp
    Erasure - the marks left behind after something has been erased, like the the impressions left in a piece of paper even after you have erased the pencil lines

    Magic
    By Fronz Arp
    Magic is a very nostalgic song for me, about feeling confused and disconnected and looking back on simpler times. The arrangement is much straighter and simpler then usual as well, somewhat in homage to that emotion and nostalgia

    I Didn't Want to Write Something So Personal But..
    By Fronz Arp
    2014 has been a bit of a tough year, though I've been trying to avoid my songwriting turning into a mush of self-pity and crotchety reflection. Sometimes, there's no way to help yourself though. I was obsessed with this song for weeks and just couldn't write anything else until it had been finished

    Kamikaze (Going Down)
    By Fronz Arp
    Kamikaze is a song about falling off the wagon when you're depressed; about the times I've gone out to have a crazy time just to cover how I'm feeling (which often means it goes wwaaayyy over the top)

    Jerks
    By Fronz Arp
    "Jerks" is based on a poem about a nuclear sized fall out with a friend from years ago which has never recovered. As time passed though, I often searched for and found parts of the things I hated within myself

    Technology (Keeping Us Apart) v2.0
    By Fronz Arp
    This song is about that hard-to-define, diminishing humanity caused by focus on disembodied online relationships. The disconnection of being able to create yourself online as you wish to be and then spread yourself around, make friends or meet partners, based on this false identity.

    Out of the Blue
    By Fronz Arp
    Originally a lyric idea inspired by the novel "The Adventures of Kavelier and Clay" by Michael Chabon (which is amazing) and the complex relationships of his characters, where its never as simple as a thunderbolt of attraction.

    Under Our Make Up
    By Fronz Arp
    The lyrics of this song was inspired by the story of Craig Gee, a young man from Sydney who was brutally assaulted in 2007 while walking along holding his boyfriend's hand. The incident sparked a vigil against rising homophobic violence in Sydney and Craig went on to lead the 2008 Mardi Gras with Margaret Cho
